The Numbers

"With Oregon exploding onto the national scene in the last decade, becoming one of the most popular destinations to move to, the area east of 82nd Avenue—including East Portland, Gresham, Troutdale, and Fairview—has come to be affectionately called “The Numbers.” It has one of the area's highest concentration of school-age children, a sky-high poverty rate, and an uncommon diversity of race, ethnicity, and language." -- from The Numbers

In May of last year, Oregon Humanities released "The Numbers," a video project by Sika Stanton and Donovan Smith documenting the hopes and concerns of young people living in East Portland.
